WANdisco’s rise continues

Bookings for British software firm WANdisco have risen 86 per cent this year, continuing the company’s impressive performance since its Aim float in June. In the first nine months of the year, the company has generated total bookings of $5.3m (£3.3m), and has attracted blue chip names such as Nokia Siemens Networks. The share price of the Sheffield-based company has more than doubled since its £16m float, a rare recent technology IPO success.
